  1. Dumont's cinematic style is aggressively physical and philosophical at the same time. It irritates as many viewers as it inspires, but it prompts more thought than ordinary movies ever do.
  2. You probably won't feel comfortable when Humanité is over, but as you leave the theater you will feel more alive than when you entered.
  3. A film of stunning impact.
  4. 84
    Dumont's movie has virtually nothing wrong with it -- aside from the fact that it drives people crazy. Take the leap, but expect no answers. Just like life, as they say.
  5. It ought to be seen, because it's a work of moral and spiritual mystery.
  6. 67
    Frustrating, tedious and yet often compelling.
  7. Reviewed by: Richard Corliss

    Don't ask us why this minimalist drama won prizes last year at Cannes or why it is getting raves in its U.S. release.
